Efficacy of the SeQuent®Please in the Treatment of De-novo Stenoses Versus Taxus™Liberté™
Randomized Trial on the Treatment of Coronary De-novo Lesions With a Drug Eluting Stent or a Drug Coated Balloon
The aim of the trial is to assess the efficacy of the Paclitaxel-coated SeQuent®Please angioplasty balloon in the treatment of stenoses in native coronary arteries compared to a drug eluting stent.

March 2013   (final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age > 18 years
  • Clinical evidence of stable or unstable angina or a positive functional study
  • Single, stenotic de novo lesion in a native coronary artery, type A or selected B1 (see Definition of lesion types)
  • Diameter stenosis > 70% (visual estimate)
  • Vessel diameter 2.5 - 3.5 mm
  • Female patients can enter this study if they are post-menopausal for at least two years or have undergone hysterectomy or sterilization
  • Signed patient informed consent form
  • Patient's and treating physician's agree that the patient will return for all required post procedure follow-up assessments as defined in the clinical protocol

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Left ventricular ejection fraction of < 30%
  • Visible thrombus proximal to the lesion
  • Expection that treatment with devices other than PTCA will be required for this lesion.
  • Stenosis is within a bypass graft
  • Known hypersensitivity or contraindication to aspirin, heparin, clopidogrel, paclitaxel, or a sensitivity to contrast media which cannot be adequately pre-medicated
  • Other medical illness (i.e. cancer, liver disease or congestive heart failure) that may require cytostatic or radiation therapy, cause the subject to be non-compliant with the protocol, confound the data interpretation or is associated with limited life-expectancy (i.e., less than two years).
  • Acute myocardial infarction within the past 72 hours of the intended treatment (de-fined as: Q wave infarction having total creatinine kinase (CK) >3 times the upper normal limit, or CK remains elevated above hospital normal at time of treatment)
  • Chronic renal insufficiency with serum creatinine > 2.0 mg%
  • Significant gastrointestinal (GI) bleed within the past six months.
  • History of bleeding diathesis or coagulopathy or will refuse blood transfusions
  • Extensive peripheral vascular disease that precludes safe 6 French sheath insertion and / or requires additional anti-platelet and / or anti-coagulation treatment.
  • Participating in another device or drug study within the last 6 months which may inter-fere with the interpretation of results of this study
